“We’re ready to party even bigger in 2019," FGL's Brian Kelley shared with Billboard. "Lots of pyro, energy, and good vibes, with a few surprises up our sleeves. And we’re so glad to be bringing our buddies along for the ride!”
FGL's Tyler Hubbard added, “We can’t wait to get back out and play all of these new songs for you! It’s going to be fire!”
With a “perfectly cheeky album title” (USA Today), FGL will perform songs from the 19-deep track list of their anticipated project, including their current chart-rising single, “Talk You Out of It.” Captained by longtime producer Joey Moi with FGL notching their first co-producer credit, Can’t Say I Ain’t Country is now available for preorder and drops February 15, complete with the heavy-hitting guest collaborations of Jason Derulo, Jason Aldean and Hardy.
FGL is nominated for Best Country Duo/Group Performance at the 61st Grammy Awards, airing live on CBS Feb. 10, for 2018’s “chart-busting hit of the year” (The Associated Press) “Meant to Be.” The four-time platinum-certified, No. 1 with Bebe Rexha, reigned the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for 50 weeks straight.

ABOUT FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE:
Billboard’s first-ever Trailblazer Award recipients continue to build their ever-expanding empire of innovative artistry and entrepreneurial endeavors throughout their colossal career. Turning up the heat with “Talk You Out of It,” from their anticipated fourth studio album, Can’t Say I Ain’t Country, the single follows platinum chart-topper “Simple” (16th No. 1 overall as artists). Shattering records of their own accord, “Meant to Be” also led the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for 50 straight weeks – the longest reign overall. Exceeding 4.2 billion streams, 31 million tracks and more than 4.3 million albums sold worldwide, the BMLG Records duo became the first country act to achieve RIAA’s Diamond certification (10 million copies sold) for their 11-time platinum breakout “Cruise,” which is the best-selling digital country single of all time (SoundScan). Since 2012, FGL has earned prestigious honors from the AMAs, ACM, CMA, Billboard Music and CMT Music awards, plus left their mark on several chart-crushing songs as writers.
ABOUT DAN + SHAY:
Grammy-nominated duo Dan + Shay debuted atop Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart with their self-titled third studio album the same week that its lead single “Tequila” reached No.1 on the Country Airplay chart, marking the first time since 2009 that a duo or group has topped both charts simultaneously. Their platinum-certified single “Speechless” recently followed with a four-week No. 1 at country radio and a seven-week reigning run on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. The single has already sold upwards of 1.3 million track equivalents, including more than 175 million streams. “Speechless” follows the double platinum-certified viral hit “Tequila,” written by Smyers, Jordan Reynolds and Nicolle Galyon, which became their first multi-week country radio No. 1 and is currently nominated for the Grammy Awards’ Best Country Duo/Group Performance and Best Country Song. They’ve performed the global smash, which has accumulated 355 million on-demand streams, on “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” “Ellen,” “CMA Fest” concert special, the 53rd ACM Awards, “TODAY Summer Concert Series,” CMT Music Awards and the 52nd CMA Awards. With “Tequila” and “Speechless,” Dan + Shay boast the two of the five most-streamed country songs of 2018, and they became only the sixth artists ever to hold the top two spots on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart simultaneously.
The skyrocketing pair made SoundScan recorded history as the first new country duo to debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Albums Chart with their gold-certified first album, Where It All Began, featuring the No. 1 single “Nothin’ Like You” and the platinum-certified “19 You + Me.” The breakout duo followed up with 2016’s Obsessed, which produced two more No. 1 hits with the gold-certified “How Not To” and platinum-certified “From The Ground Up.” Dan + Shay recently joined Chris Young for the fall leg of his Losing Sleep run, and they will kick off their sold-out Dan + Shay The Tour in March 2019.
ABOUT MORGAN WALLEN:
Rising hit maker Morgan Wallen is making his mark on Country music. Between platinum-certified No. 1 summer smash “Up Down,” featuring Florida Georgia Line and his highly anticipated follow-up single “Whiskey Glasses” burning up the charts, Wallen has burst onto the scene as a dynamite solo artist and in-demand songwriter. Wallen’s debut album If I Know Me (Big Loud Records), premiered in 2018, and was soon after named one of Taste of Country’s “Top 10 Country Albums of 2018, So Far.” With over 400 million combined digital streams to his credit, he was spotlighted in CMT’s Listen Up “18 for 2018” class of newcomers, named a 2018 Taste of Country RISER, and earned opening spots touring with the likes of Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Chris Lane and Jake Owen. Wallen has co-penned hits for a Thousand Horses, Dustin Lynch, Kane Brown and Jason Aldean, most notably on platinum-certified No. 1 “You Make It Easy.” The Tennessee native is currently on his 27-city headlining If I Know Me Tour presented by Shiner Light Blonde.
A native of Philadelphia, Miss., Big Loud Records/Tree Vibez Music Country artist Hardy first arrived in Nashville in 2010 and has since established himself as one of the most exciting new songwriters on Music Row. Emerging in 2018 with the platinum-certified No. 1 “Up Down” (performed by Morgan Wallen and Florida Georgia Line) and platinum-certified, No. 1 hit “Simple” (Florida Georgia Line), his knack for unforgettable grooves and unique turns of phrase have made him an in-demand collaborator. In 2018, Hardy made his debut as a solo artist, releasing a hard-charging EP of Country swagger and rock attitude, This Ole Boy. Comprised of four loud-and-proud anthems, which also pack an intriguing literary punch, the EP features the buzzworthy small-town bangers “Throwback,” “Rednecker,” “4X4” and “This Ole Boy.” HARDY will introduce his fresh Country sound to fans for the first time as part of Wallen’s If I Know Me Tour this winter.
